Rush TV update: Squidbillies Pilot

Mon, Mar 6, 2006@4:36PM | comments

Rusty the Squid: SquidbilliesIn addition to the Geddy Lee clip from the Ringers: Lord of the Fans documentary which was added yesterday, I've added the Squidbillies pilot episode (aired on October 16, 2005) to the Rush TV section. If you're not familiar with the show or the episode, it contains a Rush reference (it's also a really f**ked up show and damn funny). Towards the end of the show Rusty the squid starts hallucinating and we see him onstage jamming out with two guys who are only seen from the chest down. He then yells "All right! I'm in Rush!" and starts to play his moonshine jug. It ends up being a dream though. When he wakes up he tells his aunt, "I had the weirdest damn dream - I was in that band Rush." You can watch the entire episode here.
